I am adding the Shatter effect, but all I see is the Waveform mode, or the render mode without any actual movement on the shatter, just a hole in the middle of the picture I'm shattering. What am I not doing? how do I get the shatter to... Shatter.

Shatter is one of the fx that use the beginning
of the layer as a start point. So if you are 1 second
in you won't see anything. Set view to rendered,
set render to all, ram preview the first 2 second
And see it in default action. You will be able
to modify the start point by animating the radius
of force 1 or using a gradient map and keying the
thresh OR animate the origin of force 1.-K

Reality? What did you make it?
